Best Burrito?

I will be in Manhattan in May and want a really great burrito. Any suggestions on the best?? I love authentic but I also like the healthy version with great, fresh ingredients. A hole in the wall restaurant is not a problem -- actually it's a plus . .. .

      <enchiladas (same diff?)>

      Nope. Burritos are made with flour tortillas; enchiladas are made with corn tortillas.

    2. Los Dos Molinos, hands down...Authentic and not stuffed with rice, beans and other crap.

      1. The Burrito Enchilado with Carnitas at Mole (Allen and Houston) is the most authentic burrito I've tasted in the city. Reminds me of what I had in Mexico and Phoenix. Real good.

        1. Somebody suggested THE KITCHEN at 8th Avenue and 21st St. Anybody tried that one?

            Yep. It was awesome. But Kitchen/Market closed in 2007.


            Their cactus burrito was a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

              I find Dos Molinos nothing special (and overpriced). But I haven't had a burrito there.
